Just thought I would acknowledge some excellent mentions,Dunn,Laswell and Hopper are all integral to any bass player list.Hopper being least well known deserves much praise as does his band Soft Machine,for being cutting edge and creating new and vibrant music for decades.I had two tapes with Hugh,one with him in a trio with Lol Coxhill and another with Peter Brotzman and other folks,and I would play them for people and inevitably the question of who the bass player was would arise followed by much praise and whether they knew him or not vows to listen to his other music.Here is a snippet of the best bassist I have ever seen.
